Excerpt: Recently, author Nelson had the pleasure of interviewing David Beech, the CEO of the professional services firm Knights in the UK. David has led the business, originally a law firm, since 2011. His vision for Knights is to become the leading regional professional services business in the UK.
The interview took place on the Legal Talk Network podcast (The Digital Edge: Lawyers and Technology) with co-host Jim Calloway, available here.
By way of introducing David, he qualified as a corporate lawyer in 1990 and in the late 90’s turned to law firm management until 2004 when he left the practice of law to raise and manage a private equity fund. He brought these skills together by leading Knights to become the first professional services firm to raise external private equity investment in June of 2012 and to become the fastest growing commercial firm in the UK.
